Mainly work, didn't had time to listen to a lot of podcasts this week. Went to a school reunion on the weekend. Slow week.

Mostly work, since I was on a business trip to Munich for a few days. Got tickets for next years beyond tellerrand conference, hope to see you there 😁. Someone opened the first issue on django-fileresponse 🍾 requesting to be able to use it for uploads, too. There were also some discussions and mails around the Python Podcast.

Just got back home after a long day at the being me factory, and as always, it was a long and arduous shift.

Work was good this week. Recorded and produced a podcast episode about crypto (yes, the BitCoin and BlockChain stuff, not cryptography).

Got sick with some gastrointestinal infection: Not as bad as covid, but still no recommendation.

Got the stable diffusion model running on my MacBook Air. Installing grpcio only worked after setting some environment variables:

CFLAGS="-I /opt/homebrew/opt/openssl/include" LDFLAGS="-L /opt/homebrew/opt/openssl/lib" GRPC_PYTHON_BUILD_SYSTEM_OPENSSL=1 GRPC_PYTHON_BUILD_SYSTEM_ZLIB=1 pip install -r requirements.txt
Maybe I'm just bad at coming up with interesting prompts, but I would guess about 10% of the generated images are interesting in some sense. I put some examples below in the out of context images section.

Back to normal work, which is fun, too.

Started a mouse delivery side business. The catching part works great and now I'm looking for new customers. Do you need some mice? I already talked to a bird of prey at a nearby park. Maybe there's an arbitrage opportunity.

Created a new repository holding a template for new Django projects / apps.
